Transition Zero

Transition Zero is an EU Horizon 2020-funded project, carried out by Energiesprong, to establish the right market conditions for the wide-scale introduction of net zero energy homes across Europe.

Energiesprong transforms neighbourhoods and enhances people’s quality of life. Amongst other projects, Energiesprong carries out the Transition Zero project which is funded by the European Commission under its Horizon 2020 programme.
